University life was so hard for me, handouts I could not afford – Tonto Dikeh shares story

Tonto Dikeh steps out looking like a doll

Actress, Tonto Dikeh opened up in an Instagram post about her difficult beginnings.

“Growing up life was not easy, not after I lost my mom at the age of three. Though I thank my step mom for keeping up with my rudeness and stubbornness. Sometimes, I felt like killing myself but God saw me through that stage in my life and sometimes I sit and ask God why me?

At the age of twenty, I said to myself ‘I wouldn’t ask my dad for money – I wanted to be independent. I tried traveling to UK but I got refused at Nigerian Embassy, not because my documents were not complete but because I didn’t have the connection to pass through.

University life was so hard for me, handouts I could not afford, I begged from hand to mouth just to eat! Sometimes, I considered going back to my dad but ego and pride wouldn’t let me.

Then, all my jeans were Alaba bend-down-select. If the jeans was longer than me I would cut it to my size to make it look rugged! If I asked friends for a favour, before they helped they would ask me to do something for them in return, like cleaning their rooms, or helping with course work.”

The 29-year-old actress who is signed on to D’banj‘s record label studied petro-chemical engineering at the Rivers State university of science and technology.

After a couple of hours, Tonto Dikeh deleted the post where she shared all this information about herself, for reasons unknown to us.
